Abbas’ advisor: Ziad Abu Ein’s death was “cold-blooded murder” that will “not be ‎passed over in silence”‎

Fatah Central Committee member and Advisor to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas ‎Sultan Abu Al-Einein:‎
‎"Abu Al-Einein: ‘Israel has crossed a red line and wants to reach the point of no ‎return.’‎
Ramallah - Fatah Central Committee member [and advisor to PA Chairman Mahmoud ‎Abbas on NGOs] Sultan Abu Al-Einein said that Israel had crossed all red lines with its ‎abominable crime, which caused the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of Fatah ‎Revolutionary Council member [and head of the PA Committee to Resist Settlements ‎and the Wall] Ziad Abu Ein. Al-Einein added that the Israeli occupation wants to bring ‎us to the point of no return, emphasizing that Fatah would not pass over this crime of ‎the Israeli occupation in silence.‎ Abu Al-Einein emphasized that the cold-blooded murder of Martyr Ziad Abu Ein would ‎not be passed over in silence, and that Minister Abu Ein’s death as a Martyr would be a ‎turning point for Fatah, which would not content itself with condolences for the death ‎of Martyr Abu Ein, but would set fire to the ground - which Ziad Abu Ein redeemed with ‎his blood - beneath the occupiers’ feet."‎

Note: Ziad Abu Ein - Fatah Revolutionary Council member and head of the PA Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall. Abu Ein died on Dec. 10, 2014 at ‎a demonstration in the West Bank that ‎turned violent. Immediately following his ‎death, PA and Fatah leaders claimed that ‎Abu Ein was murdered. Footage from the ‎event shows Abu Ein in an altercation with ‎an Israeli soldier who grabbed Abu Ein by ‎the neck, and later shows Abu Ein on the ground clutching his chest in pain. The ‎autopsy, which was overseen by Israeli and ‎Palestinian pathologists, revealed that the ‎cause of death was a heart attack, but ‎disagreement remains over the extent to which the altercation with Israeli forces may have caused ‎the heart attack. Palestinians have ‎continued to describe Abu Ein's death as a ‎‎"murder" and "assassination" by Israel.‎
